This splendid and visually arresting oceanfront home on Magnolia’s iconic Shore Road—with its delightful European-inspired elements such as granite and bluestone stairs and entry, wrought iron railings, and decorative gables and eaves—is ingeniously designed to maximize its seaside setting. “The home’s height and setback create a sense of being ‘above it all’ and a feeling of privacy and tranquility,” notes Realtor Amanda Armstrong of Engel & Volkers By the Sea, who lists the property for $2,100,000.

Evoking the feel of an elegant country villa, the home’s main level boasts arched doorways and ocean views from every room. A gracious foyer ushers you into a large living room with a vaulted ceiling, a stone corner fireplace and French doors to a balcony with adjoining sitting area. Access to a rear deck provides the opportunity for al fresco dining and backyard enjoyment when the weather permits. Should you prefer your meals inside, there is a formal dining room and a commodious kitchen well-equipped with generous cabinetry, granite counters, and built-in desk/work station. Completing this level are three vaulted-ceilinged bedrooms with ample closets and full bath.

The top floor dazzles, according to Armstrong, thanks to a sumptuous master bedroom suite highlighted by an expansive spa bath with his-and-her vanities, oversized walk-in shower and bidet, and a private balcony. A lower level offers a walk-out family room, a half bath, a laundry room with custom cabinets, and a flexible bonus room with hardwood flooring.

Added amenities include professional landscaping, underground sprinklers, energy efficient doors and windows, home security system, central vacuum, and an over-sized two-car garage. A short stroll to coveted Magnolia Beach and quaint Magnolia Village, this property is also close to the train station and all major routes for commuting.

“This very beautiful home” says Armstrong, “is made even more special by its unsurpassed views of the Atlantic, the Boston skyline, and the gorgeous Cape Ann sunrises and sunsets.”
